Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $24,008)

The Edward Byrne Memorial Justice Assistance Grant Program (JAG) allows states and units of local government, including tribes, to support a broad range of activities to prevent and control crime based on their own state and local needs and conditions. Grant funds can be used for state and local initiatives, technical assistance, training, personnel, equipment, supplies, contractual support, and information systems for criminal justice, including for any one or more of the following purpose areas: 1) law enforcement programs; 2) prosecution and court programs; 3) prevention and education programs; 4) corrections and community corrections programs; 5) drug treatment and enforcement programs; 6) planning, evaluation, and technology improvement programs; and 7) crime victim and witness programs (other than compensation).

The disparate jurisdictions of the city of Enid and Garfield County will use their JAG award in the amount of $24,008 to purchase Digital Ticket Writers and a used police cruiser. The Enid Police Department will use the Digital Ticket Writers in police cruisers. This digital equipment will reduce the amount of time required to issue a citation and increase both officer and violator safety, as well as improve data quality throughout the citation process. The Garfield County Sheriff's department will use JAG funds to purchase a used police cruiser and vehicle emergency equipment, increasing deputies' presence as more vehicles will be available for patrol purposes.
